LIVE! From Calgary, V2

 

CALGARY -- Good evening hockey fans, George Richards here to share another evening with you, the Florida Panthers, the Calgary Flames, and the Empire Carpet bobblehead.

Long day of travel, but it did bring another stop in Red Deer. If you've never been there, make plans to go. Now. It is a true garden spot. Actually, I kid. I enjoy Red Deer and their fine eating establishments. Always a good stop.

Now, on to hockey.

As I posted here earlier, Bryan McCabe was held out of practice today and will not play against the Flames because of a hip flexor. Pete DeB says he's just "erring on the side of caution" and that Bryan McC is day-to-day and could play laster on this trip. Nick Boynton also out with an oblique strain.

Lot of regulars in the lineup tonight, with Tomas Vokoun scheduled to start and go the whole 60.

More as we go. Less than an hour before the puck drops.

-- FYI: Edmonton leading Winnipeg 7-0 on CFL Friday Night Football. Go Eskimos!

-- GAME ON, and game on the radio too....check out the fellas at 970 AM in Calgary...

YEPPERS...DAVID MOSS RIGHT BETWEEN VOKOUN'S SKATES....CALGARY RUNNING AWAY WITH THIS ONE...IT'S 6-2....STILL 11:26 LEFT....ZZZZZZ...
